I had a 92 NA for a little while. Great car to autocross, but the T Top leaks were killing me. Wish I had gotten a hard top.

I had a 91 mr2. White with blue interior with the t-tops. Nice little car however it was not as reliable as a typical toyota. I kept mine for about 5 years. One of the few cars that I have owned that I regret trading.

I have a CRX . Think of it as an MR2 with 5 reverse gears and 1 forward gear .

I wanted n MR2 really bad when I was looking for cars, but they were all a little out of my price range. at least 4k for a turbo 92+. 2-3k was my limit.

:jealousy:

I moved to SC in an '86 MR2 I bought for $450. Put 30k miles on it and sold it for $600.

Now I have a 2000... much nicer in almost every way except the engine and shifter aren't as smooth. 200 pounds lighter, 30 extra HP, and a ragtop make up for that though.

I had an '86 green/beige. Loved it but wanted more power. So I sold it and got a black '91 turbo. My brain went soft after a few years, got married, bought a dog and sold my MR2 for a 4Runner. I still regret that one. Don't ever sell your MR2, they will only appreciate in value from this point on!

My brother still has a 91T that he drives daily. No issues except an alternator and the paint and leather are shot after 190k miles.

Just sold my '94 MR2 turbo. I'm regretting it already. Had it for the past 9+ years, and it was a great car.

I had a 92 NA T-top. The first car I took to the track. My favorite handling car, even better than my STi, but only not as fast.

The t-top leaked like a lactating mother.

I had a 89 Supercharged MR2
I had a 91 Turbo MR2 (sold if for 6500 in 98, probably could get more than that now
Had a 91 NA Auto that I traded in for the WRX
sold the WRX for a integra, close to a MR2, (well, closer than the WRX)
Have my eye on this MR2 that I detailed later summer



more pics

he told me that he' sell it to me when he's done with it.

93Turbo
53K original adult driven miles with ALL service receipts (90% done at a dealership)
Rust free car from Texas (and he's not gonna drive it thru our harsh chicago winters)

I think either late summer next year or early the following year are when it'll be mine. . .

I also had a lead (sp?) on a 95 turbo for 3500 that I'm still waiting to come thru. . .

the next MR2 I get I will not sell or get rid of under any circumstances. . .
